8:00-9:30pm. Charis Books, Charis Circle & Deeper Waters invite you to an evening of prophets and poets to introduce the new book, Telling Stories to Change the World: Global Voices on the Power of Narrative to Build Community and Make Social Justice Claims, edited by Rickie Solinger & Madeline Fox. National & local poets, as well as featured writers in the book, will tell the true story about the controlling of our bodies for war, profit, and oppression. This event will transform the notion that the bodies of people of color, people with disabilities, and queer people, among other communities, are 'wrong' and 'expendable'.
Some featured Artists/Writers will include: Leroy Moore, a Berkeley, CA based artist, broadcaster and activist and founder/producer of the BlakKrip Hop Project; Mia Mingus, a Queer Disabled Woman of Color South Korean Transracial Adoptee and Reproductive Justice Organizer; & Cara Page, a Black queer poet, producer, organizer, healer & founder of Deeper Waters. Other special guests TBA.
We will also be inviting the audience to participate in a 'telling truth' exercise on expendable bodies, inspired by a Deeper Waters Project called, Third Story/Third Voice. So come! You won't want to miss this! (booksense)
